The International Egg Foundation charity is governed by a constitution of Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIO), with the only voting members being the charity trustees.
The management of the foundation is the responsibility of the trustees, who are the ultimate decision-making body and are overseen by the trustee Chairman.
The Board of Trustees hold bi-annual meetings to oversee and complete due diligence on prospective projects and ensure that all supported projects are operating within the IEF guidelines.
